Another Ranking, this Time FAU is #123 in Research World-Wide

The FAU public relations office points to another ranking (in German), this time the Times Higher Education ranking of 2015, which lists FAU as the 123rd best research university in the world. Weirdly, it is only the 12th best university in Germany. This speaks to the overall research strength of German universities, I guess. The article also suggests that the strength of FAU are its MedFak and TechFak, i.e. the medical researchers and engineering researchers. Not surprisingly, to those who didn’t know, we call this region “medical valley”.
